We are looking for Program Managers to join our enterprise level PMO.
Program Management is a relatively new discipline for Spotify, but as the company has grown and programs expand across many functions and departments, this role has become critical in order to execute against our highest priority initiatives successfully.
The enterprise PMO is also in its early stages, but as we attract the brightest and best Program Managers we simultaneously will be creating a center of excellence for all program managers within the company to learn from and share with each other.
As a Program Manager (PM) you will be responsible for driving the execution of our most strategic initiatives, our company bets. Company Bets are large-scale cross functional and company wide initiatives that we believe will have a significant impact on the business within a short to medium term timeline. Company Bets are very broad and require generalists who are confident and capable of handling programs with varying technical, business, financial, product and legal ramifications. This particular role differs from a traditional PM role in that you will not be working with a dedicated project team, but rather ensure that necessary deliverables for your particular initiatives are worked into the plans of affected teams.
We expect end-to-end oversight and management and need people who are self-motivated, independent, and proactive. Your projects often span offices, time zones and hemispheres, and it’s your job to keep all the players coordinated on the project’s progress and deadlines. Due to the fast paced nature and time zone overlap, you must be able to quickly (realtime) triage, prioritize, and lead cross-functional teams under pressure.
In order to be successful in this role, you should be able to build credibility, establish rapport, and maintain communication with stakeholders at multiple levels, including those external to the organization. A roll-up-your-sleeves and get the work done attitude is a must. Your strength should lie in seeing the holistic perspective, see how all the moving parts should tie together, and systemize it into a functioning program.
